Mexican meals are a favorite for us so we often have some form of it once a week. This recipe for Slow cooker fiesta shredded meat makes the perfect filling for tacos, burritos or even over a salad.

Everyone ones loves it and it is Trim Healthy Mama friendly.

Another bonus? You really can use any kind of meat. I like to use chicken breasts and then as is, it is is a fuel pull. I can have it over a salad with salsa,  guacamole and sour cream for an S meal or over brown rice for an E meal.
